Home sweet home.

What I've done so far:

1) Went to see Juno (Delightful)
2) Eaten at Buddy's Pizza twice (Delicious)
3) Read two-thirds of the His Dark Materials trilogy (De-lovely)

Happy Holidays from mine to yours.

In other (current) news... this is crazy AND it's time again for my favorite online photo gallery.

My new hobby?

Searching the New York Times Archive from 1851-1980.

I've always loved looking at old articles on just about anything but this sure beats trying to use the microfiche machine.

Speaking of which, the other day one of our interns didn't know what a microfiche was. Imagine growing up in a world where you never had to use a microfiche...weird. Now I know how our parents must feel.

Anyway, I particularly like looking for events that happened in my neighborhood like this carriage accident:

Also of note is the "foundling" and "death from congestion of the brain" - what?!

I’d like to welcome you all to the world of Christian mime ministry.

Makes me think back on some pretty embarrassing performances I took part in back in my youth group days. Praise Jesus that Youtube didn’t exist then…

I can’t even decide which of these is best…This one even has ribbon dancers…

Apparently these mimes can be pretty intense… “Powerful,” “pulse-pounding” and “mind blowing” even...

For more examples of wild and crazy Christians, pay a visit to Godtube.

Snow Day! from Sam L. on Vimeo.

Welcome to winter.

This afternoon Andy and I crawled down a manhole in the middle of Atlantic Avenue...

For a tour of the world's first "subway" tunnel.

It was dark and spooky.

But pretty awesome. Bob, the man who "found" the tunnel back in 1981, was quite a character.

Apparently there's an old railway car buried past here...

But for us, it was the end of the line.

After the tour, it was time to pick out this year's Christmas tree. Ain't she a beaut?

There's nothing like walking in to the fresh scent of pine. Mmm.
